VIDEO: Disney Animates Mech in "Big Hero 6" Teaser Trailer

First Disney animated Marvel Comics movie adapts obscure Japanese superhero team

For their first animated movie based on a Marvel comic, Disney will be adapting the obscure, even to Amecomi readers, Japanese superhero team Big Hero 6.


While there isn't much to complain about in the newly released teaser trailer, the previews have prompted some criticism that the movie lacks Japanese verisimilitude, even accounting for the fact that it's set in fictional mash-up San Fransokyo.

"Big Hero 6" is a heartfelt comedy adventure about robotics prodigy Hiro Hamada, who learns to harness his genius—thanks to his brilliant brother Tadashi and their like-minded friends: adrenaline junkie Go Go Tamago, clean freak Wasabi No-Ginger, chemistry whiz Honey Lemon and fanboy Fred. When a devastating turn of events catapults them into the midst of a dangerous plot unfolding in the streets of San Fransokyo, Hiro turns to his closest companion—a cutting-edge robot named Baymax—and transforms the group into a band of high-tech heroes determined to solve the mystery. Inspired by the Marvel comics of the same name, and featuring comic-book style action and all the heart and humor audiences expect from Walt Disney Animation Studios, "Big Hero 6" is directed by Don Hall ("Winnie the Pooh") and Chris Williams ("Bolt"), and produced by Roy Conli ("Tangled"). The film hits theaters in 3D on November 7, 2014.
